Cash Purchases

Cash purchases must conform to the restrictions placed on purchases from University of Illinois System and State employees. They must conform to the same prohibitions and restrictions placed on certain commodities and services procured on the Purchasing Card (P-Card) program such as alcoholic beverages, firearms and ammunition, furniture, animals, and radio chemicals.

Cash purchases should only be made when the Purchasing Card is not an option and are limited to a maximum of $499. These purchases are then reimbursed using an Invoice Voucher submitted to University Payables. "Stringing" or making successive small purchases or payments to bypass the $499 limitation or any other purchasing policy is not permitted whether with one or several vendors.
